  1. A Barren Tree In Naha Suburbia

    A Barren Tree In Naha Suburbia

    I noticed this tree at a park while trying to get a nice creative crop of Naha City with Ryu:X being a focal point but this tree ended up being in the way for that, and it was a little too hazy out in the distance for such a clear day to get a sharp focus. The tree, however, reminded me of the...

    Tips Photographing Moving Subjects — Landing Planes

    The last Tuesday Treat (a weekly series of one photo released on Tuesday) of a landing Tokyo 2020 painted JAL Boeing 767 landing at Naha International Airport at the peak of Senaga Island was quite the learning experience for me. This is because I am in the midst of shifting to use manual mode...

    Ride The Bus In Okinawa

    Ride the bus in Okinawa so its fate doesn't end up like this, and your pockets stay a little bit more padded getting around while out on the town.

    Scenic Spot Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) On Mount Yaedake

    When winter is about to roll around every year, and the sakura (cherry blossoms) are in bloom, the number one question people tend to ask is where a good spot to view them is and how long the season lasts. The cherry blossom season in Okinawa lasts throughout the month of January. However, you...

    2020 Cosmos Festival

    If you love the scent of flowers or even the beautiful look that some may have, this is one festival that you don't want to miss! There will be about 5 million cosmos flowers on display at the Cosmos Festival 2020 in Nago. And, not everyone is the same: They will have reds, pinks, and white...

    DISCUSS South Park Beach, Itoman: Sunset

    Sunsets in Okinawa are fascinating to watch if you can catch them. Sometimes they drift slowly behind clouds on a rainy or cloudy day, always making their way to the East China Sea; they typically only spread rays of whites, but you can sometimes get a break and see some yellows in there. Either...

    GUIDE Usage of "Okinawa Photographers" Forum

    We certainly have the space to attach a RAW file (DNG preferable) to any image posted, even if you choose to post a smaller output of 2048 on the long end (Photoshop CC) if you choose to "Attach files" within a thread. Though we would prefer you to use the Media Gallery, create your own album...
  13. Umikaji Terrace Beer On Senaga Island

    Umikaji Terrace Beer On Senaga Island

    A day late, but still fitting as a Tuesday treat and a throwback Thursday! I had to pull the ole Rebel T6i box out the closet to see the receipt and the purchase date: 12/09/2016—been shooting 3-years now and my work has come a long way. This is actually a re-edit of an old post made on here on...

    Photo Op A Split Screen Saturday

    A SPLIT-SCREEN SATURDAY up in cold, wet, and windy SATE VILLAGE, along Highway 58 (old Highway 1) north of Okuma. I took this a few years ago, but it reminds me of the weather here in Okinawa yesterday and today. Actually, I wish I was up there, but, I'm stuck at home for other things...
  16. Route 58 Through Downtown Naha

    Route 58 Through Downtown Naha

    Route 58 through central Naha can have some of the worst traffic ever. Today, I imagined that there wasn't a car insight, and I could get home in about 5 minutes as opposed to the usual 30. That, however, was just a dream. The reality is, traffic on Okinawa isn't the greatest, but this route is...

    Photo Op Romantic & Fun Swing

    Here's a ROMANTIC SWING hung from a very cool tree. It's meant as a photo spot to seat a Bride & Groom, a romantic couple, or a few little kids holding flowers and being cute... or whatever you want. This natural "set piece" is at the SAME PLACE as the Romantic Stairs with the "SO HAPPY" sign...
